The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain officers and directors of Humana Inc breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:HUM investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On July 3, 2015, Aetna (NYSE: AET) and Humana Inc (NYSE:HUM) announced that they have entered into an agreement under which Aetna will acquire all outstanding shares of Humana for a combination of cash and stock valued at $37 billion or approximately $230 per Humana share based on the closing price of Aetna common shares on July 2, 2015.
